Over the past two months, one of the things I have struggles with is defining an action plan for my goals, and sticking to it. Life has been SO beyond busy and it seems every night I go to bed thinking about what I want to accomplish my my fitness/nutrition the next day, and then every next day I mess up. Yes, even I, as fitness/nutrition obsessed as I am mess up! But, now that I am finally feeling settled in my new home and city, I decided enough is enough, I need to stop with the excuses and get on track with an action plan.
So…before is start giving you the day by day rundown of my training, I thought I would first share with you all my goals for the next 8 weeks.
1) Stick to my training plan. I spend so much time writing out my training plans (which I will be sharing with you), the least I can do is stick to it! No excuses.
2) Increase marathon time by incorporating speed work into one run per week.
3) Maintain a clean and healthy diet sticking to proper micro nutrient rations (which I will also be sharing!)
4) Drop 5 lbs in 8 week period to aid with speed and consistency on course.
Pretty simple, right? I feel like my biggest goal is just to be consistent. It’s going to be a fun 8 weeks and I know it will be super challenging to balance it all, but I am ready!
